Paper Well, I'm gonna ride my KLR this weekend.. Haven't had it out on a real ride in a month, other than just 10 miles to and from work.. So, this weekend I'll slap another 500 or so miles on it for kicks..

Before riding, I'll change oil, because it's time.. And I'll lube the chain if it looks dryish..

Other than that, I'll ride.. When I get it home, I'll push it back in the garage..

I DID wash my GS last night, though.. I rode a bunch of gravel roads last weekend and I needed to clean the dust off before slapping on the new tank panniers.. That, and the lights weren't working very well after riding through a couple hatches over by the river last weekend... It was like riding through a snow storm..

Crazy Jake I was so happy…. I had my $$$$ on the littlest ANT. And sure enough, the little guy stayed on the back of the cat for the entire 8 seconds…..

Would you? The only thing I think is overly anal is the air filter since we didn't do any serious dust, just some gravel. I imagine it's still pretty clean...I may skip that if it looks OK. (I've been super busy and so far have just washed the bike and cleaned the chain). I haven't even really ridden it's been so freakin' hot.

Anyway, I was just curious what y'all would do...

(P.S. - Yes, I know some consider washing the bike overly anal)
